Of course this has nothing to do with commercial drivers/need for office space etc.

Just a silly comment about a city view lost.
I don't know if I'd personally go so far as to say that it has "ruined" the skyline, but I know what you mean. It does feel a bit like someone drew a stick figure on the Mona Lisa, doesn't it?
